No. 1 star: Charlie Sarault, Sarnia Sting (OHL)
Sarault (1G-4A, +3) and Reid Boucher (2G, +3) continued to ensure the Sting don't miss Alex Galchenyuk too much, as they led Sarnia past the Barrie Colts 6-5 in an absolute scorefest. The day began with the Sting wearing the Cornwall Royals 1980s throwback jerseys during the warmup as a tribute to Colts coach Dale Hawerchuk and then the two teams channeled a game from that decade. By the time Boucher popped in his own rebound for the game-winner after taking a Sarault feed, the New Jersey Devils draft pick had his 49th goal of the season and Sarault had an OHL-best 85 points.
Sarault kept his teammates' plates piled high with loaves and passes all afternoon. The Fournier, Ont., native showed great vision in the second period, when he zipped a pass through the traffic to give Boucher a one-time goal and then set up 17-year-old offensive defenceman Anthony DeAngelo (1G-2A, +2) a few minutes later.
Fittingly, on a day when a Winnipeg Jets great was honoured, Mark Scheifele had two goals for Barrie. The centre had six points in three games this weekend after returning from the Jets.
